The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.
By focusing on research and development, materials science is able to provide new materials for use in industries. Materials science relies on several scientific and engineering departments to work together to problem-solve for the future.
Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

The AMASE Masters course has been successfully implemented over the last five years with funding from the Erasmus Mundus Programme. Scholarships are available for students from all over the world and are between 500 EUR and 1000 EUR per month. The course has demonstrated high quality throughout. In order to ensure the programme's continuity - the "non-selected status" may prove temporary and only last until the next call - the consortium delivering this Joint Masters course has been awarded by the European Commission/EACEA an Erasmus Mundus Brand Name (EMBN) by which it commits itself to maintain the requirements and level of excellence expected from an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course. The common Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (AMASE) Master Programme is offered by four European Universities. ... [-]

Materials are what make up everything around us and their properties are critical to the performance of any system or device where they are used. Almost every aspect of modern society is touched by a technology made possible by advances in materials. For example, the internet and mobile phones would not be possible without optical fibres and semiconductors. The study of materials is based on the relationship between the properties of a material (which determine its functionality), its structure, and the way that the material is assembled. Materials science is inherently multidisciplinary and includes subjects from both basic sciences and engineering, and from physics and chemistry.... [-]

Master in Engineering Materials ScienceThe Master’s programme in Engineering Materials Science is characterised by a cross-functional approach – focusing on both the understanding and study of current materials, processes and applications, as well as the development of new materials and processes.Programme outlineThe programme is open to students with materials backgrounds and has three different tracks, each focusing on different complimentary aspects of material and process development, while incorporating each students’ individual experience in the area. This makes the programme both comprehensive in the fundementals of the field, and tailored to meet personal academic and career goals.Track 1 - Industrial Materials (IMTA)Materials such as steel, lightweight metals and semi-conductors have made development possible for many years and will continue to do so in the future. Through the choice of courses, the student may decide to specialise in Materials Design, Process Science or, preferably, a combination of both areas. This track is only for students with a solid background in Materials Science and Engineering and Metallurgy.Track 2 - Materials and Process Design (MDNA)Materials and Process Design has, like Industrial Materials, a strong focus on materials and processes, properties and design. The content of the courses offered within this specialisation will cover all of the different areas of Engineering Materials Science and Metallurgy during the first term. This track is only for students with a background in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Science and Engineering or Engineering Physics.Track 3 - Materials Processing (MPTA)Materials Processing has a strong focus on materials in general and provides inter-disciplinary courses within materials processing. The content of the courses offered within this specialisation will cover the areas of casting, plastic forming, modelling and simulation, and mechanical metallurgy. This track is open for students with different materials backgrounds, preferably Mechanical Engineering.Degree projectThe degree project is one semester of full-time work and is undertaken during the second year. Typically, the preceding summer is used to prepare for and specify the thesis project. The project is then carried out in the area defined by the courses taken during the first year of the programme and may be conducted in industry, at a KTH department or in another technical university or research institute anywhere in the world.Career prospectsStudents graduating with a Master of Science degree specialising in Engineering Materials Science are in great demand throughout the world. The education also provides a solid scientific foundation for further research studies at KTH or abroad after graduating.... [-]
